Baptist Medical Group Wound Care

Our bodies have the ability to heal wounds. Sometimes, however, wounds don't heal on their own. Chronic wounds are injuries or sores that don't heal within two to three months and therefore require specialized care from wound care physicians. These types of wounds are often associated with other health problems, such as diabetes or vascular disorders, but they can also occur as pressure sores or from traumatic incidences.

Wound care is the medical specialty focused on the proper treatment of a wound to ensure it heals correctly. The wound healing our bodies naturally do is an intricate process, and sometimes, it needs the expertise of a trained wound care physician.
